DreamWorks CEO offered $75M for more episodes of Breaking Bad
October 11 , 2013
DreamWorks CEO was so much in love with 'Breaking Bad' that he offered to pay $75M for three more episodes of the show.
Jeffrey Katzenberg was aware of how big the amount was for the creators of the show since "the last series cost about $3.5M an episode," he said to an audience of TV executives. The amount would have been $25M for each of the three extra episodes.
Katzenberg explained that he wanted to "create the greatest pay-per-view television event for scripted programming anybody's ever done."
Although the dream died, the idea is still alive and he might just spend this money on the spinoff of the show.
